Inconceivable!

The Princess Bride is a fun little fantasy picture. Although I didn’t see the movie as a kid, I still feel like a kid when watching it. The Princess Bride is a perfectly harmless kids movie. While the movie isn’t particularly deep, it doesn’t mean adults can’t still enjoy it. The Princess Bride is different then most fantasy movies, because it’s actually told like a book. A grandfather reads The Princess Bride to his sick grandson. Who reacts to the story as its being read to him. The story takes place in the magical land of Florin. A land filled with fantastic creatures, giants, and pirates. Westley is a farm boy who falls in love with the fair maiden Buttercup by simply saying “As you wish.” When they’re parted, Buttercup becomes a princess bride and Westley becomes the Dread Pirate Roberts. A big highlight of the movie involves a group of outlaws the two encounter. The lovable giant Fezzik, the charming Spaniard Inigo Montoya, and their conniving leader Vizzini. But their love is so strong that not even the dastardly Prince Humperdinck can stop them. The Princess Bride is funny, endlessly quotable, and sincere. The strongest part of the movie would have to be the romance. You really feel the chemistry between the two leads. Not that there isn’t still enough for the boys, the swashbuckling action is enjoyable as well. It’s also directed by Rob Reiner, one of the best. So pop in The Princess Bride and enjoy it if you haven’t already.
